App Bargain Bin

Our collection of apps today will help you get going in the right direction, whether that’s physically, monetarily, or professionally.

All app prices are subject to change at any time and without notice regardless of stated free duration. Price changes are solely under the control of the developers.

iPhone:

Anchor Pointer — GPS Compass & Traveler’s Navigator ($1.99 → Free, 9.6 MB): Store GPS locations and find your way back to them with this navigation app. This is the perfect tool for adventurers and travelers alike.

We really enjoy using Anchor Point because of its simplicity. Just tap the “Add Anchor” button to pinpoint your location, and attach a name and icon to it. The location will be stored in your personal list where you can also share it with your friends. When you want to make your way back to your anchor point, just follow the compass or view the directions on the built-in map.

Anchor Pointer — GPS Compass & Traveler’s Navigator is available for free today only (01/16). It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 71 ratings.

Super Lemonade Factory Part Two ($2.99 → Free, 27.8 MB): Join Andre and Liselot in the second part of their great adventure in this puzzle-platformer. Super Lemonade Factory Part Two is for those who enjoy indie games with amazing pixel art and tunes.

Super Lemonade Factory Part Two is bigger and better than the original in every way, and that’s saying something! Once again, you’re put in control of Andre and his wife Liselot. This time around, however, you must help them escape from the chaos that has descended upon Sydney. Both Andre and Liselot have their own unique abilities, and you can switch between the two in order to solve puzzles and successfully reach the end of each level.

Super Lemonade Factory Part Two is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 6 ratings.

5coins – Spend Everyday ($1.99 → Free, 2.2 MB): Find out where all of your money is going with this finance app. It’s designed for anyone that wants to keep track of their daily expenses.

Unlike similar finance apps, 5coins doesn’t try to do it all. Instead, it focuses on just what you spend on a daily basis. That’s it. No jumping through multiple screens to perform a single task. Just swipe down on the screen to enter a value and attach a note. The app will keep a running total of everything you’ve spent, and you can view your expense history with an upward swipe.

5coins – Spend Everyday is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 387 ratings.

Rocket Valet! Galaxy Landing Service ($5.99 → Free, 5.5 MB): Try to hit the landing target outside of a dark city with your rocket ship in this casual arcade game. Rocket Valet is for anyone that enjoys pick up and play games.

Rocket Valet is the perfect little time waster that’s easy to get the hang of but difficult to master. Your rocket ship controls are found at the bottom of the screen. You must tap the thrusters to navigate your ship through delicate mazes and safely to the landing pad. You’ll be rewarded with bonus points for a direct hit and small bounces. After each successful landing you can choose to record your high score or risk it all to climb even higher up the leaderboards.

Rocket Valet! Galaxy Landing Service is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 53 ratings.

iPad:

Audio Notebook: All-Day Sound Recorder, Widescreen Notepad, and Color Coded Note Organizer ($2.99 → Free, 4.2 MB): This note taking app will help you stay on top of all of your classes and meetings with only your iPad. It’s ideal for students and business professionals who have trouble keeping up with discussions while taking notes.

Audio Notebook is able to capture a whole day’s worth of audio while you take thorough notes. When creating a new note, you’re able to title and color code it. Then tap record and start typing. The app features a large, legible font and automatic spellcheck, making it supremely easy to blast out notes. You’re also able to take notes in portrait or landscape orientation. When playing back audio, you’re able to seek and choose various speeds. The app includes unlimited audio recording, customizable categories, the ability to filter notes, and the ability to share notes and recordings via email.
